Plant-based meat producer Heura and meat-free advocates Bosh! have collaborated to release a plant-based chorizo burger.
The chorizo burger can be served as is, broken up into smaller chunks to “provide ‘flavour bombs’ throughout a dish”, re-shaped into meatballs, kebabs and sliders or sauteed for use in bases for ragouts and casseroles.
Marc Coloma, food activist and Heura co-founder, said: “Bringing healthy, delicious and affordable plant-based foods to the world’s largest dedicated online grocery retailer shows that we can remove animals from the food chain with no compromise in choice. Ocado has a progressive customer base, with quality and taste at their hearts – the perfect match for our nutritious, delicious and versatile chorizo burger.”
Bernat Añaños, Heura co-founder, added: “Our community asked – we listened, and we created. The chorizo burger is the brainchild of our Heura TechRebels and Bosh. Designed to allow consumers to burst with creativity, this product goes beyond standard use.”
He continued: “Having an animal meat successor as a versatile ‘ingredient’ is the next step in making it mainstream, and we can’t wait to see what our community and beyond create using this exclusive new product. Bosh! share our global mission of creating a movement which excites, inspires and enables consumers to make a choice which benefits the planet, animals and people every day.”
The exclusive product will is available on Ocado for an RRP of £3.50 per two-pack.
